Trump issued an executive order that prohibits immigrants with any visa status from entering the United States from the following countries: Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen.
Only three of these countries are in the top 10 when looking at the percent of the total population of the country that is Muslim. The lowest percentage is Sudan, the 44th most densely Muslim country.
Iran is the only country on this list that is also one of the top 10 countries with largest Muslim populations by total people.
